New York, March 8 (IANS) Singer Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of rock icon Elvis Presley, is not happy with the way the press has attacked her for gaining weight and has announced that she is pregnant. According to, Presley has written on her blog about her frustration about media obsession with her weight.

She wrote: “Confirmation under the gun. After being the target all week of slanderous and degrading stories, horribly manipulated pictures and articles in the media, I have had to show my cards and announce under the gun and under vicious personal attack that I am in fact pregnant.

“Once they got a glimpse of my expanding physique a few days ago, they have been like a pack of coyotes circling their prey whilst eerily howling with delight. Starting with a London publication and then New York and Chicago all writing false defamatory degrading stories about all of the dark possible reasons I could be putting on weight. The US tabloids have been calling all day wanting confirmation on all kinds of insane theories.”

She added: “They couldn’t wait to find out if my weight gain was because I was just overeating, in which case it would be open season and they can do the old ‘following in her father’s sad and unfortunate demise’ story again or less interesting for them and probably much to their dismay, I could just be pregnant and therefore have a legitimate reason for weight gain at which point they should probably wipe the saliva off of their fangs and put them back in their mouths or they may expose the black little souls that they are.”
